About No Kid Hungry Arkansas:
At one point, Arkansas was number one in the country for food insecurity. Now the state has a new distinction: the largest increase in the number of summer meals served to kids facing hunger of any state in the country. In 2013, Arkansas children were served over 4 million meals, an increase of 1.6 million meals over the previous summer. And in 2014, Team No Kid Hungry in Arkansas reached all 75 state counties with free summer meals for the first time in history. Thanks to the efforts of No Kid Hungry Arkansas, the state government's energetic support, and the dedication of our many partners on the ground, we're ending hunger in Arkansas. The success of Arkansas is a testament to the No Kid Hungry model -- with the right mix of political will, private sector support and community engagement we can end childhood hunger in America today.
